Moving past the napkin: Getting your business ideas out of your head and into a plan
powered by Wells Fargo 

Having a well-thought-out business plan can help a business owner stay focused on company goals and objectives, yet according to a recent Wells Fargo survey, only 33 percent of small business owners said they have a formal, written business plan. Even though many business owners have ideas for plans in their heads, those who put plans in writing are more optimistic about the coming year. The challenge for many business owners is getting started. Join this interactive session to see how you can get your business ideas out of your head and into a plan.
